3 Top Tips for an Organised Wardrobe

Wardrobe organisation can be a daunting and tiresome task that seems like it is never-ending because clothes are always coming out and going in (where is that cute, polka dot top gone that you swear you had last week?!)

Items of clothing seem to go missing and washing day is a squeeze to get it all back in so you can close the door/drawer….

Does this sound familiar?

In this blog, I am going to share my top 3 tips on how to get an organised wardrobe with flow and functionality (and keep it that way!).

Let’s dive in!

Top Tips for an Organised Wardrobe

1. Give Everything a Home

I say this about every space and the items that live in it, especially in a wardrobe.

The reason being that like I mentioned above, clothes are constantly coming in and out meaning it is much easier for things to get lost or moved or even forgotten about!

After going through all your clothes – which of course is our first step to decluttering a messy wardrobe – decide where in the wardrobe you are going to place everything.

Another great idea is to use storage if needed. For example, shoe boxes if your shoes stay in the wardrobe, shelf dividers to keep things in their place or even baskets for loose items like socks and undergarments.

Kmart has all the things I have mentioned above, and I have linked them in for your convenience!

2. Put Things into Storage

If you have a lot of clothes for a specific season e.g puffy winter coats, scarves, boots, put them into storage for the period you don’t need them! Things like puffy winter coats can take up a lot of space in a wardrobe and if they are only used seasonally, then what is the point in them taking up that precious space in your wardrobe!

Storing clothing away when it is not needed will be a huge help in you feeling like you have enough space within your wardrobe and will keep the clutter at bay.

3. Group Like Items

Nobody wants to stare aimlessly into their wardrobe not even knowing where to begin looking!

It wastes time and drains energy.

A way to stop this from happening is by grouping like items together. What I mean by this is, group t-shirts, pants, skirts, long-sleeved tops etc. together. This way, depending on the weather and your mood, you will know where to begin looking!

Some common categories include:

  • T-Shirts
  • Tank Tops
  • Long Sleeve Tops
  • Cardigans
  • Jackets & Coats
  • Sweatshirts & Hoodies
  • Knitwear Tops
  • Shirts & Blouses
  • Pants & Jeans
  • Shorts
  • Skirts
  • Dresses
  • Loungewear
  • Sleepwear
  • Activewear
  • Formal Wear
  • Maternity Wear
  • Swimwear & Beachwear
  • Lingerie
  • Underwear
  • Bras
  • Socks & Tights
  • Shoes
  • Accessories (Jewellery, Bags & Hats etc)

Use labels on the baskets or shelves. This will stop your time from being wasted when dressing and when putting clothes back in after laundry day!

An organised wardrobe also declutters your mind and helps you maintain a time-efficient morning routine. You will have an easy access to all the items in the wardrobe, enabling you to browse your options and choose your outfits for the day more confidently.

Not only this, but you also save your precious time and money as you are not digging through your wardrobe each time you need something or buying duplicates/similar items.

So, give these tips a go when organising your wardrobe! I am sure it will help you create a wardrobe that is easy to use, functional and chaos free.

It is important for us to reinforce that our role as an organiser is not to tell you what to keep and what to throw away, but instead to assist and guide you by asking questions to help you make an informed decision for yourself.
